Is TS4 one of the best Sims games of all time?

    I don't think I would say 'almost' either. What you can do in this game isn't even 'almost' - all I see is Sims talk, talk, talk. That's it! Talk, talk, talk, talk, talk - drives me crazy. They gave us something to do with retail lots and what happens? Sims talk, and talk, group up and talk, and talk some more........and more!

    If you actually find something for your sim to do, what do the other sims do? They stand around looking lost for a short time and then you can almost see them thinking 'Ah, you found something for that sim to do but I'm going to wreck what you intended for them by interrupting them with ............talk, or a hug, or a kiss.

    I don't know why I'm still on this forum - the game drives me crazy. I can't even design interiors anymore without creating loads of CC. I think I'm close to being done with the game. :( I'm teetering on the edge, finding it difficult to let go of something which has played such a large part in my life. Oh well...................

    I only played TS3 and TS4.
    For now, I can't say it's the best.
    But it's not bad at all.

    Sims 4 has by far the best art direction of any of the games. I love how the sims look in TS4 where as I really didn't like the appearance of the sims themselves in TS3. Not without heavy use of mods. I also really like some of the build mode options they added, though I miss friezes so much!

    That said, it also had the smallest amount of actual content at launch, and is still a bit lacking. Get to work and Get together definitely helped a great deal, but until more of the features we had in previous games return It won't feel as 'whole' as the previous games for me.

    I, for the most part, only hang out in build/buy. I find all the goal oriented RPG play lacking in what is supposed to be a sandbox game. The game holds your hand, instead of giving you true freedom of choice.

    Depends on your opinion, I personally think The Sims 2: Castaway is the best Sims game of all time, it's still my favorite and I played it the least, how can you not love a survival Sim with Monkey Friends?

    Now this I have to really agree with. That was a side game, but the best game of the series in my opinion also. I still play it!

    I think it is, because it has already outsold TS2 and TS3. Probably because you can do whatever your heart desires in The Sims 4. :)

    So you can do what ever you want huh Really? Then if you can do what ever your heart desires try doing this with your sims 4. I know this video is not base game only but still you can not do this in your sims 4.

    It doesn't matter because even if it was the best it wouldn't change your opinion what so ever. So pick one you think is the best and in the end that is the best in YOUR own opinion and you know what the no.1 opinion that matters the most is your own.
    This needs to be pasted all over this forum.

    Can you prove that? Don't you know Sim fans of any Sim game want proof of stuff like that? I sincerely doubt TS4 outsold TS2's first week and I really doubt it outsold TS3's first week. All we heard one say was 'sells are strong' soon after release but things got better (per another) months later when they finally released an EP to fill in the base. But no one came running down a hall and said 'Guys! We broke the mold and outsold TS2 and TS3's sells on first day!' That didn't happen. When you hear 'sells are strong' it means they were worried and it did O.K.

    @catloverplayer 1)The Sims Faces look much more attractive particularly the females. They look more life like as well. TS3 faces were ugly.

    I like you and will not say anything bad about you,but seriously be honest.I dont use CC and I just play with premades.

    Funny joke! Made me laugh hun.

    The thing that made me laugh is...

    Many debate weather or not you really rule the game, something which you can actually do in TS3 of course


    Prey tell what, because I couldn't do most things I wanted in Sims 3. 1. I couldn't enjoy real family play. (Couldn't stand it long enough to stick around for so called generations) I could not play several families as they were destroyed by the so called story progression. Couldn't go on a real vacation unless I wanted to raid a tomb, and let's not talk about all the bugs, lagging, and crashing. I could not change the map (before CA which I refused to buy World Adventures. I sure would like to know what Sims 3 game you are talking about?

    So, because you had a bad time with a game means that experience must be universal for every person who played it? It's not possible for the same game to give everyone different experiences?

    Are you really that freaking dense?

    and I do not like people saying TS3 Sims are ugly either, I have heard that loads of times before, usually from people who never even played the game,or those who never seem to like sharing pics of their own ;)

    Fact : None of them are the best.
    Opinion : The Sims 3

    None can be the best because they are opinions. Even if one was the best BY FACT, that doesn't mean it is the best in your opinion.

    Consider this: not everyone finds fat oval faces attractive which is all you ever get in TS3. If you do, that's fine. It's a subjective thing, and your preference is not a wrong preference. But don't presume people are just clueless, i.e., haven't played the game, simply because their taste is different than yours.
